Q
Is there a requirement to place the company’s Australian Business Number (ABN) on the template of an SWMS?
A
SafeWork Australia and SafeWork NSW provide templates online of an SWMS. On these templates, there is no field that requires a company’s ABN.

Further and more generally, these bodies are silent on any specific requirement for a company to provide its ABN on an SWMS.

However, it is important that the SWMS clearly identifies the organisation and principal contractor it relates to, whether it be through the company name or the company name and ACN/ABN.
